I am very excited to be running my first full Marathon this fall with Catholic Charities.
So far I have run 4 half marathons, 3 in New York City, but I'm ready to take things to the next level.
I chose to run with Catholic Charities because it serves our fellow New Yorkers, regardless of background or religion. While there are so many great causes around the world that deserve attention, I find we sometimes look past many problems right in front of us. I'm thrilled to be able to raise money that will go towards providing food, education and resources for people in need in the city I love, something that will both drive me as I train and ultimately push me through those 26.2 miles this November. Very excited for the journey ahead...heeeeere we go!
